Biking to Reston – no gas!

We’ve actually biked to Reston Town Center a couple of times, but those times we’ve carted the bikes up to the W&OD trail on the car. Today? We didn’t load the bikes on the car. Instead, we biked the 3 miles to the W&OD trail, and then up to Reston. No gas. Yay us.

Our destination was the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival in Reston Town Center. We stumbled upon this art show last year, when we rode to Reston for a movie, but we enjoyed it so much that we kept this year’s on our calendar. We didn’t actually buy anything this year (beyond the cinnamon pecans and almonds). However, we hope “someday” to have buy some art for our house – likely when we move to a new place we’ll hire a decorator to help us with our eclectic tastes. We found some candidates, though I still need to go through the cards we picked up to remember everything.

Today was a great day for biking. When we got up, the sky was gray, but that didn’t last long. The sun came out, but it wasn’t too hot. The W&OD trail was filled with wildflowers, and I took a few good pictures. Here are a couple of them:
Little purple wildflowers White wildflowers Small bloom

Total miles: 20.0
Season miles: 63.8
